This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Thrifting again.............

As we took two poodles in to the groomers I just had to stop and see what was new. As I have found every other time they had much more new things in. I cant resist. Two cups and saucers made in Japan.I may find a small shelf and put them in the blue room.

I found another rooster plate that went up in the dining room and I will soon put the other one up now.

I also found a couple of small vases, something that will make nice toppers for the garden ornaments

This is the other little pot and behind it a hand painted vase. Not sure I want to use either one outside. We shall see

I also found these two china balls. I may try to find some more at Pier 1......I think a basket of them would be nice and I cant see me finding any more like this.

I have to stop going there. I really dont need anything else at the moment and I really don't need anything else in the house but its addictive and even though I have spent way too much money there, I console myself that it does some good. This little plate was to go with another glass plate to make a flower.

I have taken pictures of the things I made and will show those when I am sure they are stuck. That the glue is dry.
